This picturesque village resort is something of a suntrap and stands in one of Yorkshire’s most handsome bays. It is sheltered from the strongest weather by spectacular cliffs but was not always so fortunate. In the 17th century the village was virtually washed away. Nearby Kettleness is a headland that has become a nesting site for many seabirds. The ‘Hob Holes’ are caves which resulted from the mining of jet.
